It’s a scary thing
Often we hide from it
Tell ourselves little stories to keep us happy and away from the truth
But sadly there will come a point where that isn’t posible anymore or even worse is when something shows you the truth
This is often the case with health and fitness that we tell ourselves it isn’t that bad
I can fix it at any time, no worries
Or we compare ourselves to others, see they are worse than I am
It often isn’t until we have a reality check that we decide something needs to be done
Something needs to change
This can come in many different forms;
A visit to the doctor
Realising that you can’t keep up with the kids/grandkids
That the things used to hurt a little bit, now hurt a lot
It is never to late, but when you get these reality checks it often means you have to take action right that second because other wise it could truly be to much of a struggle back.
And then sometimes you get the really positive reality checks.
One of my members was doing deadlifts, she was using 35kgs and she exclaimed this is very heavy (true statement, she managed it just fine)
How much is it, and I told her.
She just stopped and looked at me and said did you know this is how much I have lost.
I smiled back at her and just nodded and said now can you understand why everything was so difficult?
These are the kinds of wake up calls you want, to realize how far you have come and how much you have achieved.
Until next time,
